Milky Way vs M87: Event Horizon Telescope Photos Show 2 Very Different Monster Black Holes

Three years ago, scientists used an Earth-sized telescope to capture the first-ever image of a black hole. Now they’ve done it again – this time, closer to home, and from a very different invisible behemoth.

The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) has now captured images of two super-heavy black holes: the one at the center of a galaxy called M87 and the one at the center of our own galaxy, the Milky Way† In the process, the hundreds of scientists involved in the endeavor got their first glimpse of two objects that have surprisingly little in common.
